Today was the day. I went and got a hair cut for the first time in three years! I had been growing my hair out to donate it, and as you can imagine, not cutting your hair for 36 months means some pretty long tresses! This is actually the longest I’ve ever had my hair.
I’ve donated my hair twice before, both times to Locks of Love. This time I did some research about hair donation and decided to support a different organization. I wanted to insure that the hair I sent would be used responsibly, and I preferred an organization that didn’t charge its recipients. Pantene’s “Beautiful Lengths” campaign seemed like the perfect fit. Beautiful Lengths is a partnership between Pantene and the American Cancer Society to “graciously help women who have lost their hair to cancer treatments”. They turn the hair that is donated into real-hair wigs and provide them to cancer patients free of charge. I’ll be sending my foot long pony tail to them soon!
Now for some pictures…
It will take some getting used to it being so “short”, but I’m really happy with how it turned out! And hopefully it won’t take 20 minutes to brush anymore! Have you ever donated your hair before?
If you’d like more information about donating to the Beautiful Lengths Campaign you can see the official website here.
